One more month and my Maggie Grace will be half a year! Half a year! I cannot believe that she is growing up so quickly. This past has month has been so much fun! Life with a baby gets better and better; each month she is learning so much and it is awesome to be able to be there for ALL of it! It is such a blessing to be a stay at home mom and hang out with my baby girl all day, every day! We have a blast together, reading stories, going on walks, playing with toys, spitting, making silly noises, having little photo shoots, singing songs - you name it, we love it! *Don't get me wrong, we (I) have our moments when things get frustrating...but God is SO GOOD! And it is awesome to be being sanctified as a mommy! What a blessing
Maggie is to me!
So...On to the interesting things:
Maggie is talking! She babbles and coos and gaga-goos all the time! It is pretty much the cutest thing you've ever heard! I am convinced she will have a scruffy, raspy little voice. She's going to be this beautiful, little, petite, feminine thing with the voice of a smoker. It's going to be pretty cute, I'm sure :)
We started doing solids every day, morning and night! Mostly just oatmeal cereal...we tried avocados and sweet potatoes (not together) once, but she didn't love them. I think it was a little too chunky. I mixed it by hand; I think we need to get a blender of sorts to assist in my baby food making efforts.
She is sitting up for around a minute at a time all on her own!! So fun and scary! I know crawling is right around the corner. I've caught her caterpillar crawling a few times, just inching around! Baby-proofing is coming, I guess. I actually think my biggest need in that area will be to vacuum the insane amount of hair I lose daily (which is apparently normal) off of our floors so she doesn't eat it - GROSS!
She was sleeping about 11 hours a night (AMAZING, thank You, Jesus!) - until the day she turned 5 months, actually, when we entered into the fun world of teething! (I think/I hope this isn't just a new phase she's in). Mom's any sure fire teething tricks you'd like to send my way are greatly appreciated! I will be sad to see her priceless little toothless grin go, but a little tooth will look pretty adorable in her precious mouth!
We also started a 4 hour feeding schedule - which has been the bomb (again until the teething started, but hopefully it's just a hiccup... :) !!
Maggie had her first Easter! She is so beautiful! I cannot get enough of this sweet girl!! I could just kiss her little face all day - so I do!
22 BIG weeks!!
The happy happy Wauhop family! We love our little Maggie!! Thank you, Lord!
